What wheels are those? 18"?
18" Rotiform Nues
Thought that knowing you guys, you would really "appreciate" seeing how my car currently looks
God, how I hate this season. It's too cold to wash it, yet take it on a drive and after a couple of hours it will look like in the picture above. Wish it was summer still, ahhh...
Haven't put a picture of mine up before but I took this in June last year before I moved to France with her (well, until October). I love the colour....if I ever buy a new Audi I will configure it with Nogaro Blue.
I have owned this particular S3 since 2010 and bought it from the original owner. It was on 90k when I got it and now she's on 158k. When I first got it I clayed it, did a "de-tar" on it, mopped it with my dual action polisher and then applied a three stage Blackfire protection sealant to it. Three and a half years on and it still shines after a wash.
I take pride in keeping it original with just OEM style modifications. To date I've fitted just cruise control, mkIV golf aero wipers and Polo wiper arm rear, black replacement silicone hoses, a black Forge 007P, Revo remap and Badger 5 TIP. I've also had the wheels re-furbished locally and put replacement centre caps on it.
The interior is totally standard (black leather and blue suede seats - the usual). It has a personal number plate which reflects my job, the speed of an S3 and the fact that it is a S3! I have no other plans except I will visit Bill at Badger 5 soon for a boost check-up and I want a Milltek resonated back box.
According to the original invoice it had the following options:
- Noggy blue paint
- 18" alloys
- Aluminium mirrors
- Boot mounted CD changer
- Electric sunroof
- Tracker (fitted free of charge because it was supposed to have a Symphony headunit but arrived from the factory with a Chorus)
- Black leather and blue alcantara seats (no cost)
It still amazes me now but the total cost including VAT/tax was: £27,800!! **faint** Worth every penny though!

Hi how much does front bumper weigh ? As i byein one
Just the route I'm going with mine. Mint oem with a few little refinements.
a lot of very nice s3's
My first s3 have too say I am enjoying it but have a lot of new car paranoia and also a lot of new turbo car paranoia as it's my first turbo car! But I love it was standard when I bought it with the 18" ttrs wheels on it. Didn't like them so got some 17" avus wheels, had the door blades front lower grill surround and rear bumper insert wrapped in combat grey and the headlights tinted. A forge recirc valve has been fitted and supposedly has a remap but not 100%. Plans are lower it 30mm(have kw shocks and 30mm apex springs), FMIC, a revo remap or possibly star performance as they are closer than any revo dealer I think (I'm in Dundee), decat and cat back exhaust system.
not sure why my pictures are so small and ****. but yeah this is my very clean S3 in my favourite colour. slight fettling, under bonnet only. not a boy racer, mapped some forge bits and bobs and it's all VW. no after market anywhere. approx 275bhp. love it. bit it does cripple me a bit.
